How to Organize a Wedding
Last night I was up until 2am “playing with money” and trying to ensure that I was following my budget to save $$ for the wedding. Then I was up until after 3am freaking out about the wedding, money, picking my clothes that have exploded in the closet, etc.
On the money front, I’m fine. Really, I just hate not knowing exactly how much this will cost (since we don’t know our menu or our final numbers).
On the wedding front, I think I’m freaking out, because I actually don’t have anything to do. The big things are booked. There are tons of things I could be doing. And then there are tons of things that need to wait until we go to Cincinnati or wait until I have accomplished XYZ, etc. At tap the other night, I spoke my friend who got married in October. She recommended doing as much as you can now, so you don’t have to do it last minute. That is why I am on this crafting kick (plus I love arts & crafts).
Therefore, I made an Excel spreadsheet of everything that needs to be accomplished in the next 7 months, and organized the tasks by when I will/need to do them. Aren’t I dork?
So not much to do in November, but there are those “ongoing things” that have to be done at some point, right?
Much of my list is based off of the checklist given on The Knot. Obviously I tweaked some dates for when they are relevant to me.
Of course one major thing NOT on my to-do-list is GETTING IN BRIDAL SHAPE. That is an ongoing process, perpetuated by my weekly visit with the personal trainer today. Major move of the day: seated rear deltoid lifts
Holy cow were those hard. I was only using 8lb dumbbells, and barely made it to 12 reps.
I hope I’m really sore tomorrow!
